What is oregano flowering?
Oregano is an aromatic plant cultivated worldwide for its special taste that gives a distinctive flavor to many recipes. While most of us grow these herbs for their leaves, when they reach maturity, oregano plants develop flowers to produce seeds and to ensure the propagation of the plant.
Can you eat oregano seeds?
Oregano typically does not produce true seed, meaning the seed will not grow into an identical plant. The resulting plant can be much less flavorful than its parent, so you might as well harvest the flowers after the bees have had their chance. Oregano flowers are edible but have a more delicate taste than the boldly flavored leaves.
What do you do with oregano after it grows?
If you allow the oregano plants to reach maturity, they will make lots of flowers. Bees, butterflies, some species of flies, and all kinds of pollinating insects seem to adore the pollen from the flowers of oregano. Therefore, if you can鈥檛 find another use for these parts of the oregano plants, just leave them in their care.
How do you know when to pick oregano?
As with most herbs, oregano leaves taste best before the plant flowers. The flowers should be pinched to keep the plants bushy and prevent it from bolting to seed. The flowers stalks are spiky and may be white, pink, or purple. You can begin harvesting when plants have reached 4 to 5 inches in height.
